What should you expect in this Virtual Sherry wine tour?
Have you ever wondered what the Spanish sherry wine bottle labels mean? Have you had a bottle of sherry wine and do not understand why some are pale colour and very dry, while others are dark, bold and very sweet? Then join me in this Virtual Sherry wine tour.
I will walk you through all the basics of sherry making. As well, we will discuss many of the different types of sherry and how each is different. The tour will be interactive and I will answer any questions you have, as well as learn how each type of Spanish sherry is made and be able to analyse the sherry wine that you have at your local store. We will learn why expert chefs and sommeliers around the world recommend sherry wine to pair with food, with its high versatility and one of the best values in the market. At the end of the tour you will receive an information package with a description of each sherry and how to pair with food written by the D.O.Sherry organisation.
My passion is to give sherry the opportunity to shine worldwide. Sherry wine is complex, has a unique wine-making style, versatility to pair with food, and amazing value. During this online wine tour you can learn about sherry from your own couch without having to come to Cadiz. Next time you go to the supermarket you will be able to choose a sherry for the occasion. I recommend to join the tour with a bottle or a couple of bottles of sherry in hand. Sherry can last up to a month or two depending on the type of sherry opened.
Frequently asked questions
What should I bring for the tour?
I would recommend having a bottle of at least one sherry to taste during the tour and ideally a variety of types. If you want to try a few different ones I would recommend a Manzanilla/Fino (e.g. Tio Pepe), Amontillado/Oloroso and a Cream sherry. Or bring your favourite sherry and learn about why you prefer this sherry making method rather than the other types. Make sure to also have some glasses and a corkscrew ready to serve the wine!
You can also get some simple tapas to pair with the sherry. Iberian ham, prosciutto or simply olives pair well with a light sherry such as Fino. If you have a darker colour Sherry bring some nuts.
What happens if the internet does not work?
We would repeat the tour again to ensure that we will be able to enjoy a nice relaxing talk about Sherry.
